‘Sowing Seeds of Community’ – Spring Equinox celebration

As the days get longer and lighter, we look forward to welcoming the arrival of Spring at the Spring Equinox. This season is all about ‘Sowing Seeds’…..out in the garden but also sowing ideas and new connections and celebrating our new Seed Library!

We invite you to come connect with our community, whether you have been part of it for a long time or are discovering it for the first time. Together with the Edinburgh Seed Network we will be celebrating the completion of the founding year of our community Seed Library and invite our local community and neighbours, organisations, and individuals to come along and discover how to use the new library and learn about seed saving and food growing.

You are invited to drop in throughout the afternoon – there will be both all-day and scheduled activities:
